My computer didn't crash again yet, so here's the more recent "leaving New
York" saying:

22 March 1976, New York <i>Times</i>, pg. 25:
At the height of the city's financial writhings, New York magazine called
for personal belt-tightening in the form of fewer dinner parties and film
screenings, while advertising a $14 metal toast plate engraved, "When you leave
New York, you ain't goin' nowhere." Remarkably, New Yorkers are able to couple
such expressions of scorn with a childlike bewilderment at why the rest of us
don't love them as they love themselves.
